Back in 1989, one of country music’s most iconic couple’s, Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter,took the stage to duet an old classic, “Suspicious Minds.”
First written and recorded by Mark James in 1968, it was made extremely popular by Elvis in 1969 and became the last #1 single of his career in the United States, and is now known as one of his signature songs.
And Hoss recorded it as part of a set for Austin City Limits that was later released as a live album and DVD, Live from Austin, TX, which included many of his own most popular songs like “I’m a Ramblin’ Man,” “Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)” and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.”
The DVD of his performance was so popular, in fact, that it was certified gold by the RIAA in 2007.
